International Women's Day

Monday 8th March 2021

What is International Women's Day?

International Women’s Day is a day when we celebrate the wonderful women in our lives. It’s a day to recognise and mark their brilliance. It’s also a chance to reflect on the challenges women all over the world still face and how we might tackle them. The theme for International Women’s Day this year is #ChoosetoChallenge – it invites us to challenge gender inequality wherever we see it.

"My daughter is a keyworker and has been working long hours. I sent her flowers to say how proud I am of her. She absolutely loved them." - Jeanette

Keyworkers have kept the world going. Whether she’s been on wards, in aisles or doing deliveries, celebrate her phenomenal efforts with a stunning hatbox.

For the amazing co-worker

You know the one – she makes working life brilliant, her skills always save the day, you just couldn’t do without her. Say a special thank you to a working wonder woman with a gorgeous hand-crafted bouquet.

For the unsung hero

If she’s the glue that holds it all together, but never the star of the show then it’s time to show your appreciation. These beautiful blooms delivered in a stylish vase will do the trick, she’ll barely need to lift a finger.

Championing female talent

Of course, this International Women’s Day we’re also celebrating our incredible female florists. Their creativity, skill and hard work are awe-inspiring. Remember, when you buy flowers for International Women’s Day you won’t just be celebrating the special women who receive them, you’ll be supporting the ones who made them too.

“During the pandemic I brought all my equipment home from the shop and started operating as a one-man band from my garden shed. You can take the girl out of the florist (shop) but not the florist out of the girl. Wherever I go floristry will be in my bones forever!”
Fiona Andrews, from Lockwoods, Doncaster, South Yorkshire Fiona Andrews, from Lockwoods, Doncaster, South Yorkshire

“Our family has always said you should find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life! With over 75 years of trading under our belt, I still think this is the best job in the world. I buy thousands of flowers every year and am always delighted to discover new colours and varieties to use in our designs.”
Sarah Smith, from Flowers by Sarah Ann, Heybridge, Essex Sarah Smith, from Flowers by Sarah Ann, Heybridge, Essex

“We’ve been so busy since lockdown. I’m checking on people as I do deliveries - that they're ok and offering to do people’s shopping or pick up things for them. Sometimes I think I'm the only person they've seen in days. We can’t offer them a hug but we can give a few kind words.”
"Mum
you're magnificent!"

While we’re talking about amazing women, don’t forget Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Whether she’s mum, or like a mum, we’ve got gorgeous blooms to celebrate her.
